I’m disappointed and shocked that Bariya Ibrahim Magazu was flogged while an

application for leave to appeal was still pending in the courts.

I’m particularily concerned that the authorities carried out this punishment on a young girl without investigating or prosecuting those who abused or exploited her.

I urge that state courts respect the rights enshrined in the Nigerian Constitution and observe legal procedures available under both Islamic and secular law which would ensure a humane, equitable and fair treatment of defendants.

I urge the authorities to allow defendants sentenced to corporal punishment to exercise their full rights of appeal to the higher courts, and not to obstruct their attempts to do so on procedural grounds.

I strongly object to corporal punishment. It is a cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment. Such punishment contravenes Nigeria’s Constitution an international human rights treaties to which Nigeria is party.
